Construction works in the area of ​​the fountain planned in the park square have been completed. The architectural monument that will be installed in the fountain is in the preparation stage. Modern city planning standards will be applied here, and pedestrian and bicycle paths will be built.

Various works related to the organization and development of agriculture will be carried out. The land areas to be used to manufacture agricultural products have been determined and the list of necessary innovative techniques has been prepared. Modern irrigation systems will be used in “Smart Agriculture.” A planting plan for the Smart Village project has been prepared.
